Chasing the Cookie

There is something simple and wonderful about chocolate chip cookies. They are the quintessential cookie.

If you don’t like chocolate chip cookies, I’m not sure we can be friends. I’ll make exceptions. If you’re allergic to chocolate or some other heartbreaking circumstance. Maybe I’ll let it slide if your parents were killed by a chocolate chip cookie.

But in general, if you don’t like chocolate chip cookies…I’m just not sure about you. I mean I try not to judge people, but this is one just one of those things for me.

I am always chasing after the perfect chocolate chip cookie, and I don’t think I’ve quite nailed it yet.

I think I’ve come close a few times, But I will forever be in search of THE perfect one.

I dove into Sally’s Baking Addiction again for this one, entitled THE chocolate chip cookie, and it was good. It was very good. But I still don’t feel like it’s quite there for me.

And maybe that’s me being a weird perfectionist…

Or maybe I’m the jackass who definitely didn’t add enough chocolate chips. That might be it too.

*facepalm* definitely not enough chips…

I’m still a big fan of the malted chocolate chip cookie, because malted milk powder pretty much makes everything better.

I’ll make those another time.

PS: I signed up for the Wilton Cake decorating class at Michael’s which will be every Saturday in February. I’m super stoked to learn all about how to make frosting look pretty!

  1. This is my favorite cookie recipe! I always add a quarter cup (or a half cup… or a cup…) more chocolate chips, and I find the baking time to vary sharply from batch to batch, but when it’s right, it’s fantastic. Enjoying your baking adventures. 🙂
